“Best productivity enhancement in years!” That’s what one our customers told us when describing this new feature. You be the judge.
Scan Serial Numbers at Receiving:
Starting in Version 2.7 you can configure Ascend to automatically prompt you to scan a bike’s serial number immediately after scanning its UPC barcode. This will allow you to quickly receive bikes and enter the actual serial number for each one as soon as the they enter your store.
Let’s use a Trek bike box label for an example. First you’ll scan the UPC barcode. After you hear the confirmation tone, the new Enter Serial Number window will appear. Then scan the serial number barcode. Repeat the same process for each bike.
Version 2.7 is scheduled to be available to our Release Candidate dealers on August 20th. If you’d like to be part of this group, contact our Ascend Support Team for more details. Version 2.7 will be available for everyone on September 17th.
Trek Bike Box Label History: Years ago Trek bike boxes only had warehouse barcodes that had a ‘P’ or an ‘S’ in front of the part number and serial number. It was a hassle to remove those extra letters. Thanks to the efforts of long time Trek employee and current Ascend team member, Mike Bentheimer, that is history. Mike spearheaded the effort to get a specific section for dealers on every bike box that included UPC and serial number barcodes. Thanks Mike!
